While we encourage all of our viewers to (at the very least) entertain the possibility of installing a geothermal heat pump system for heating and cooling their homes, we realize that it is not ideal for everyone. So, no matter the nature of ...

While more and more GHPs are being installed ...
Geothermal Makes Apartments More Affordable

So where else are geothermal heat pumps being utilized? If you guessed 'geothermal apartments' ...
